sent also to [design] as I think this is where it pertains.

Hi Folks,

MS Word has a comparison chart which shows you how to perform certain
tasks in Word compared to how you effect them in WordPerfect.

It's an easy chart to check (and learn) Word if you've been a WordPerfect user.

Ex. Ctrl/F8 will perform a certain task in WordPerfect but that same
task is done with different function key combinations in Word

I was wondering if anyone has come across a similar comparison chart
for Libre Writer and Word, especially Word 2003?

The chart would show how a task is done in Word and then next to it
would reveal how that task is done in Libre Writer.

On the same goal and idea, I had suggested a *loooong* time ago on the French OOo lists to create a set of keyboard shortcuts that would help the MS-Word power users switching to Writer.

Beginners and standard users can switch quite easily. They haven't a thorough knowledge of the tool and usually just use the menus to get to the functionalities they need (argh!).

Power users have long understood that the keyboard is a tool of productivity. Thus, they use keyboard shortcuts widely. As Word and Writer have different sets of shortcuts (at least they had when I left MS-Word alone, a long time ago), it could be an interesting work to port the Word shortcuts into Writer. We could then offer an easy transition that would fill a big gap for these people, helping them to switch tools more quickly.

What do you think? Do I miss something?

Note that this is just an idea. I have to-day no clue to what the Word shortcuts are vs Writer ones.
